Todd Rundgren claims Kanye West rushed Donda release because of Drake: ‘There’s so much junk in that record’

Drake’s Certified Lover Boy was released the weekend after Donda, but out-streamed West’s 26-track album in the United States in just three days, according to data released by Rolling Stone.

 

Todd Rundgren, who isn’t listed among the long list of collaborators that West worked with on Donda, branded West a “dilettante” and “a shoe designer”.

 

He also criticised West’s over-the-top listening parties ahead of the album launch, along with his habit of inviting multiple artists to collaborate then not including them on the final project.

 

He said, “Nobody would regularly make records like that unless they had stupid money to throw around. Nobody rents a stadium to make a record in. Nobody flies in the entire world of hip-hop just to croak one syllable, just so you can say that everybody was on it.

 

Rundgren revealed hat producer 88-Keys reached out to him to to contribute to the album, but said he exited the project a year later over a lack of clear feedback from West.

 

He claimed to have “three albums worth of Kanye stems” on his computer but said he reached his breaking point in July this year, when the buzz around Donda began to intensify.

 

“I’m still a producer, and I don’t just want to be like driftwood in the process,” he said.

 

Rundgren is set to be inducted in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame next month.

 

According to data given by Rolling Stone, Drake’s Certified Lover Boy was released the weekend after Donda, but it out-streamed West’s 26-track album in just three days.

 

Rundgren, who isn’t mentioned among West’s vast list of Donda partners, called West a “dilettante” and “shoe designer.”

 

He also chastised West for throwing extravagant listening parties ahead of the album’s release, as well as his habit of inviting several artists to collaborate only to leave them out of the final product.

 

“Nobody would make albums like that on a regular basis unless they had a lot of money to toss around,” he remarked. Nobody rents a stadium for the purpose of breaking a record. Nobody in the hip-hop world flies only to croak one syllable so that they can claim that everyone was on it.

 

Rundgren said producer 88-Keys approached him about contributing to the record, but he dropped out a year later due to a lack of concrete input from West.

 

He claimed to have “three albums’ worth of Kanye stems” on his computer, but claimed to have reached his breaking point in July of this year, when the buzz surrounding Donda began to grow.

 

He explained, “I’m still a producer, and I don’t want to be driftwood in the process.”

 

Next month, Rundgren will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

50 Cent Warns T.I. To Stay Away From Him After Latest Verzuz Challenge

50 Cent Warns T.I. To Stay Away From Him After Latest Verzuz Challenge

50 Cent does not appear to be amused by T.I.’s remarks. The Atlanta rapper has been baiting the Queens, New York veteran into a Verzuz fight!

T.I. chastised 50 Cent last week for no apparent reason.

As a result, most hood people are aware of a street code. “Whatever you say behind my back, be large and bold enough to proclaim it in front of my face with your chest.”

At least, that’s one of the laws that 50 Cent, a rapper from South Jamaica Queens, lives by.

This is why he took to social media to criticize T.I. for smiling in his face at the BMF premiere in Atlanta just days after he sat on a stage and mocked New York rappers, specifically 50 Cent, just a week before.

T.I. appeared on the “Big Facts” podcast a few weeks ago, where he talked about his infamous Crime Stoppers commercial, which 50 Cent re-posted in July 2020 in an attempt to insult the Atlanta rapper.

“Expect to be kicked when you’re fighting a man without arms,” T.I. said. “N##### do their best… They will use all means at their disposal to harm you… They don’t realize I don’t care a f###. I am content. I am aware of my identity. I’m aware of what I’ve done… I m################################################################################################### I spend much of my time alone.”

“This was a week ago,” Fif said in a comment area next to a pair of emoji eyes. This n#### was just telling me about a comedy show backstage that he was working on. I don’t like all this s###, and it wouldn’t be a good idea to come near me again; please keep away.”

If you get the Scooby-Doo look after seeing that, it’s because you comprehend 50’s point of view. Especially if you’ve been keeping up with the news.

T.I. attended the Atlanta BMF screening and challenged 50 Cent to another Verzuz, according to AllHipHop.com. “50, I’m waiting on you!” the “Whatever You Want” rapper said after the BMF showrunner brought Tip out during his set.

T.I. has been with 50 Cent since July of 2020, and if it seemed impossible then, it certainly appears to be impossible now.

Kanye West Shares X-Rays of Son Saint’s Broken Arm

Kim Kardashian disclosed a few weeks ago that her five-year-old son Saint had fractured his arm, and now Kanye West is showing fans the X-rays.

On Saturday morning (September 25), the 44-year-old rapper posted three photographs of his broken arm to his Instagram account. The shattered arm belongs to Saint, according to the patient name on the X-rays.

Kanye did not add a caption to the snap, instead allowing the images to speak for themselves.

Saint was in a wheelchair after breaking his arm, and Kim uploaded photographs of him in a wheelchair on September 10.

“Who do you think cried more today?” she asked at the time. Today, my baby shattered his arm in several places. “I’m not in good shape.”

This isn’t the first time Saint has had to deal with a serious health problem in the last year. Kim disclosed in May that he had tested positive for COVID-19, and that she and the other children had also tested positive.
